Where else could you find handbells competing with bagpipes? Choirs performing
both classical and comic songs in quick succession? Versatile musicians leaping
from one instrument to another, or displays of multi-discipline expertise? At
our Festival of Music you may be surprised, excited, moved or entertained by the
enormous diversity of instruments and musical styles, and by the talents of
every age group.
The 2017 Highbridge Festival delivered plenty of variety, and regular visitors
will have seen the beginners of previous years blossom into fine musicians.
Meanwhile our fame is spreading and, again this year, we welcomed new
participants with refreshing new ideas and repertoire.
Our audiences were enthusiastic and appreciative. All the performers left
clutching a certificate and a page of encouraging and constructive comments from
the adjudicator, many with the addition of a well-deserved medal.
Our aim is to provide a platform for every aspiring musician to gain experience
of the wider musical world, to share musical contributions, to inspire and to be
inspired, and to enjoy the Festival experience.
